The place, and the manager lady definitely adorable. The location, is fine, 1 stop to KLCC, and 2 stops to Chinatown by metro. The place is clean, free wifi provided, if you are a backpacker, I couldn't imagine a better place to stay.

The room was small and basic, with just 2 madrasses on the floor and the AC, but it was clean and cheap! The location of the hostel is really bad! Yes it's close to a station but to get to KL central you have to take the metro for one stop... There really is nothing nice close by, no great... More

I made a reservation for a single after reading the comments here on Trip Advisor and I wasn't disappointed. Pros: Super clean rooms with Wifi. Very friendly host. 2 mins walk to the Bangsar LRT. Lounge to meet other travelers. They've also got PCs that you can use and plenty of books to read. Cons: None!

The hostel is near a metro station, but the area is really dirty and crappy looking. The hostel is not easy to find because the sign is really small and it is above an auto mechanic garage. I got a single room that did not even have a real bed, just a mattress on the floor with no blanket or... More

Last year, my partner and I went to visit Malaysia and decided to stay in KL for few nights which turned into longer. We stayed at the Bodhi lodge. We had discovered this little gem of a place, when randomly checking for affordable accommodation. The rooms are all furnished with basic furniture and air conditioning, which you adjust to your...

We booked for 2 nights as a late back up for some other accommodation that fell through. We booked through agoda and the pictures for the private double showed a nice double bed in a clean room. When we arrived our 'double' bed was in fact two single mattresses on the floor. The mattresses were about 5cm thick. The window... More
